If there is any way that you can get off that procrastination hook, it is worth it at almost any price! I speak from experience because I was better at procrastination than anyone I knew.

As far back as I can remember, procrastination came naturally and easily...I was great at putting things off. I stalled on school projects and my parents were on my case about my constant procrastination. I usually passed in my assignments late and my grades suffered. I just barely got into college and then just barely made it out! I was one of those people who waited until it was almost too late to study for a test or start a term paper. The pattern continued post graduation and I procrastinated on the job I procrastinated at home and in my relationships. I was sick of feeling sick over my procrastination! When my boss finally told me to clean up my act or get another job...that was a turning point!

When I first read Dr. Bill Knaus', "The Procrastination Workbook", I felt hopeful that I could escape from my procrastination trap. I pushed myself to do what he suggested. I started getting things done ahead of time. Then I bought "End Procrastination Now" and I find I have started to move myself to a higher level of control over my life. Happily I also feel confident that I will hang onto these gains and make more in the future!

Highlights of the book and what I liked about it:
1. "End Procrastination Now" is easy to read and it gives much food for thought.
2. Dr. Knaus draws on scientific research and his extensive knowledge gives you a reason to feel optimistic that you too can break your procrastination habit.
3. I like Dr. Knaus' no-blame approach.

End Procrastination Now is brilliantly done. This book overflows with great insights into procrastination and practical techniques to feel less stressed and to get more done. Dr. Knaus shows you how procrastination extends from your thinking and emotions into delaying behavior. He simplifies how to get free from procrastination by showing you how to divide and conquer these three parts of procrastination. After reading this book you'll know how to proactively cope with unpleasant tasks and get them out of your way before they become major problems. You'll learn about the double-agenda dilemma. This is the core conflict people have when they reach a decision point of acting or delaying. You'll learn how to become aware of this conflict and resolve it in favor of positive action over procrastination avoidance. I could go on, but that would be tarrying too long. Read it if you are serious about being more productive in following through in what you want to do with your life.

As a counselor, William Krauss has some great insights to offer about why you are procrastinating. If you're looking to read about procrastination, this might be a great book for you; but if you're looking for some concrete tools, End Procrastination Now! will fall short, as it only devotes one chapter to techniques. Some of these include working for 5 minutes and keeping track of your time with a time log that emphasizes recording the "shift" from procrastination to productivity (i.e. you record the intermediary step, deciding to get to work). To me, this readed more like a manual for other counselors. If you're looking for a book to grab from your bookshelf whenever you feel like reeling yourself back from procrastination, check out: http://www.amazon.com/The-Procrastinators-Handbook-Mastering-Doing/dp/0802775985/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1340460674&sr=8-1&keywords=procrastinator%27s+handbook

I suppose this is a good book. I've had it for two years now and haven't yet gotten around to reading it. Any suggestions how to get going on this, anyone?
